OUR BELIEFS

Below is a brief overview of our core beliefs. find out more come and visit us or get in touch!

ONE GOD

THE CREATOR
OUR FATHER

We believe in one GOD, who creates and sustains everything. GOD is not a cold, distant power - he wants to have a close relationship with everyone. He is our father, so we love and respect him as a father figure.

We can come to him and ask him if we have any questions or doubts and he is open to hear them, as long as we respect him.

We learn about GOD and his character through reading the Bible and in it’s pages can find the answers to all our questions and doubts.

In the beginning, GOD created the heavens and the earth.
— Genesis 1 verse 1
Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy.
— Matthew 6 verse 9

ONE JESUS

SON OF GOD
OUR SAVIOUR
OUR EXAMPLE

We believe in Jesus, the son of GOD. He lived a perfect life and set an example for us to follow if we want to live a life that pleases GOD.

Every day, in all the situations we encounter, we try to behave in the way that Jesus would have behaved if he was with us.

I am the light of the world. He who follows me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the light of life.
— John 8 verse 12
God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
— John 3 verse 16

ONE BIBLE

GOD’S MESSAGE
ABOUT US

The Bible is written by many different people, from many different backgrounds and over thousands of years.

We believe GOD worked with these people to write one, continuous and complete message. A message about GOD and his desire to have a relationship with people.

The Bible is a fascinating book made up of history, prophetic works, parables, satire, ancient literature and much more. Each of the authors and parts of the Bible tell us something new about GOD and about the human condition.

Every Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness, that each person who belongs to God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
— 2 Timothy 3 verses 16 & 17

ONE HOPE

ETERNAL LIFE
ETERNAL PEACE
A RENEWED WORLD

We have a strong hope for the future, which is detailed in the Bible. This gives us confidence and security in life even when everything around us is uncertain.

We believe that Jesus will return to the earth to set up a kingdom over all the world. This will bring an end to all pain, suffering and death. All people will know, love and worship GOD.

They shall beat their swords into plowshares, And their spears into pruning-hooks. Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, Neither shall they learn war any more. House of Jacob, come, and let us walk in the light
— Isaiah 2 verses 4 & 5
For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of GOD, as the waters cover the sea.
— Habakkuk 2 verse 14

WHO ARE THE CHRISTADELPHIANS?

The Bible in Hand logo which is used by many Christadelphian Churches

Christadelphians are a worldwide community of believers who try to follow the example of Jesus Christ, our saviour from sin.

We believe that the Bible was written down by people, but was inspired by GOD.

The word “Christadelphian“ is a bit of a mouthful!

The name was first invented shortly before the american civil war by our founding member, John Thomas. up until this point, our community didn’t have a name: We tried to give more importance to the Bible than to ourselves as a community. When the war came, the believers had to formally register a name so that they could register for conscientious objection.

“Christadelphians“ is a combination of 2 Greek words:

Χριστός - Christ

Αδερφια - Brothers and sisters.

We are a family, brothers and sisters, because of the work that Jesus has done.
